The Weekender // November 11th - November 13th
Happy start of another weekend my fellow Durangatangs! You’re probably wondering why there is a dog featured on our main Weekender image… That’s because it’s National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week! Whether you are planning on participating in some epic, local events this weekend or you are preparing for Purgatory’s opening day NEXT weekend, be sure to check out our local animal shelters and donate today as a way of saying thank you for taking care of our furry friends. November can seem a little slow around our beautiful mountain town, but there are quite a few events going on that should be on your radar! Don’t forget to like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #dodurango to be featured on our page(s). We want to see what living well in Durango, Colorado looks like to you!

Who knew golfing could be so fun… Golf with a Claws @ Durango Elks Lodge #507 & Downtown Durango
SATURDAY FROM NOON - 4PM
You don’t have to be a pro golfer to do this– it’s just mini golf! Make a team of four people and come on out to the Durango Elks Lodge #507 and golf for a cause, or claws if you will. Be sure to collaborate and wear your best costumes as the team of golfers that are declared the winners will have FREE entries to next year’s event. All proceeds from paying the team fee of just $100 will go towards the Durango Elks Lodge to fund their various community programs! If you have nothing better to do on your Saturday afternoon in Durango, Colorado, then this event is for you.
